Abstract

Hiatal hernia (HH) is a protrusion of the upper part of the stomach that is pushed into the thorax through an opening in the diaphragm. This paper mainly discusses causes of hiatal hernia, such as obesity, aging, and hypothyroidism, in a patient of 63 years old with a past medical history of hyperlipidemia, asthma, and anemia who complains of food being stuck in her chest along with emesis of food and cough. This paper's core is analyzing the causes of hiatal hernia and precise differential diagnoses.
